Spam attempts to cripple BN communications

Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders handphones have been under technical attack since early this morning.

This was done to prevent communication among the party leadership and its election machinery.




KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders handphones have been under technical attack since early this morning.

BN Strategic Communications Director Datuk Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan said the coalition leaders had been receiving non-stop calls from overseas.

He said it was obviously done to prevent communication among the party leadership and its election machinery.

“Calls from overseas keep coming in every few seconds!

“To prevent us from communicating with our machinery. This is dirty trick!,” he said in a Twitter posting.

Another BN leader, Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak also said that his mobile phone had been spammed from early morning.

The Communications and Multimedia Minister said he had been receiving non-stop calls from foreign numbers.

“I have been getting non stop calls from early this morning…it’s really strange,” he said in a twitter posting.

Others who also received such calls included Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who posted that he realised all the missed calls from unknown numbers after he finished voting.

“Just finished voting and realised all these missed calls from unknown numbers. Strange,” he posted on his twitter handle.

Meanwhile, Datuk Seri Azalina Othman said she too had been receiving strange calls from overseas numbers, especially from the United States.

She said many other BN leaders had also received the spam calls throughout the morning.
